Long Time Lurker

Hello, all.

Long time lurker here. I have an '07 Speed3 and have driven over 100,000 (mostly) fun miles in the past five years. Looking forward to problem-solving and contributing.

I'm currently experience major electrical issues and can't post in the forums for some reason. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Heads up with my issue:

  • Issue started about 3 months ago.
  • Seems to happen regardless of temperature.
  • Center console (stereo, lighting) stopped working, blinked out then back on. Turned back on when driving. Ever since the issue happens for a couple days at a time then reverts to being fine.
  • Car alarm randomly sounds when while the car is parked if the doors are locked.
  • When the issue is happening every time the car is started the air conditioner and defrost turns on (not the rear glass defrost).
  • Tripmeter randomly resets.
  • All stereo presets are lost and the stereo goes back to factory settings. (The CD player has been jammed for years and doesn’t work.)
  • When the console isn’t working there is a persistent light on indicating that there is a door ajar
  • All interior lighting does not work when the issue is happening
  • Chime reminding lights are on stops working when issue is happening
  • There are NO issues with starting or battery drain
